Mars Trine Chiron

Today’s Mars (21 Cancer)-Chiron Retrograde (21 Pisces) trine brings to the fore deeply karmic wounds connected with the Masculine Archetype. As Mars is in Cancer, we might find this to be an intensely emotional experience of such wounds triggered by a maternal figure, a domestic/familial situation, a housing matter and/or the emotions of a male/masculine partner. We may also equally, simply see this manifested within the animus (male archetype) within the psyche. Mars is also squared Uranus (who has just turned Retrograde at 20 Aries), making this situation or outburst appear ‘out of the blue’, in an unpredictable or erratic manner. Either way, it serves to shed light upon a level of awareness or consciousness that is required to ultimately heal the Masculine and integrate it as part of ‘I AM Consciousness’.

Chiron Retrograde’s role is to show us our deepest spiritual vulnerabilities, not to suffer through them, but to find ways we can heal ourselves and others in the process. Chiron’s medicine in Pisces tends to be compassion, unconditional surrender to Spirit and a willingness to remain open to the experience, emotion, sensation and vulnerability that such spiritual journeys often entail.

Those with placements between 14-28 Scorpio will experience this as a Grand Water Trine – and – we’re all experiencing that on account of The Moon’s ongoing Scorpio Transit. The Grand Water Trine is in its final stages, whilst the Moon meets Saturn Retrograde at 28 Scorpio. This brings an added sense of gravitas, and a need to make a lasting commitment, or decision to matters surrounding our sub-conscious fears and complexes, our relationship with intimacy, sexuality, finances and Power.

Those with placements near 13-28 Cancer or Capricorn will experience this energy as a Grand Cardinal Cross (if both are present), or as a Cardinal T-Square in the case of a single placement.

All in all, this Mars-Chiron trine brings to the fore karmic wounds of the Soul’s Journey as it seeks to re-member, reclaim and heal our individual and collective relationship with the Masculine Principle. The role of Cancer and its ruler, The Moon (The Mother) and Saturn (ruled by Capricorn, the Crone) point to the role of feminine / maternal wisdom in this process.

Blessings to all,

I’ve been following world events and looking at the skies – and as many of you will know, there is an intensely fierce, martial energy threatening to break out with Mars (which when stressed, is related to accidents, aggression, impulsiveness, and so on). Be it the bombings in Gaza (and no, I’m not going to get into the politics of it – War is terrible when it costs the lives of the young – no matter the ideology behind it – and costs are bound to be felt on both sides), the lives lost in the Malaysian plane or just the rising intensity of domestic/personal conflicts. 

Remember that Mars is still in Libra until the 26th of July – this is where diplomacy can build bridges, or where careless words can spark diplomatic tensions that can have wider consequences.

So what does one do with this knowledge?

Some of you will protest, others will raise their & other’s awareness, some might write to their MPs, or participate actively in online forms. But as spiritualists (most of the people who interact with my pages), another thing we can do – which I have firm faith in – is to pray.

Pray for peace. Pray for diplomacy to find a way out of hostile negotiations, pray for a path to be built that does not require the aggressive use of Martial-Mars energy.

For when Mars moves into Scorpio, the energy only intensifies as Mars’ energies (when operating from the ego) then confronted us all with the question of how power is used and how control is acquired.

This is not meant to scare anyone, or to predict doom and gloom and disaster – it is simply to say that those of us who believe in prayer should focus our energies now. Others, like Anna Merkaba have put out a similar call.

On the 27th of July, at 6:42 am (GMT + 8:00) or as close as you can to that time, I encourage us all to come together in prayer. This will be a powerful New Moon where the Sun, Moon and Jupiter will be conjunct in the sign of Leo (strongly squaring Mars). As we come together to set seeds of powerful intention during this New Moon, let us know that our spiritual energies and intentions are working towards a single purpose.

To Heal the energies of the Masculine (Mars) at this time as they manifest in our material reality. Note that the Sun, Jupiter, Mercury and Venus will make square to Mars throughout August, ending in the first half of September.

You can call it the Path of Peace, Love, Harmony, Balance – You can invoke deities you pray to, or simply turn to the Moon and cry out loud – whatever you are comfortable working with.

Let’s come together to do this. I strongly feel that collective spiritual work at this time is critical.

I will be posting relevant pieces of information closer to the date and hope that many of you join.
